LTO offers free theoretical course to Sipalaynons


The Sipalay Land Transportation Office, in partnership with the Local Government Unit of Sipalay City, recently conducted a two-day theoretical driving course (TDC) for residents.

The course, held on May 13-14, 2024, at the Barangay Gil Montilla covered court, is a mandatory 15-hour classroom module covering various traffic laws and regulations topics, including RA 4163. The aim of the course is to provide a comprehensive understanding of traffic laws, road safety, and responsible driving practices.

An in-depth overview of the course material, including discussions on traffic signs, signals, pavement markings, driving techniques for different weather conditions, and the consequences of violating traffic laws were also discussed.

At the end of the course, registered participants received certificates of completion after passing a 120-item written exam.

This certification will be a requirement for those who wish to apply for a student permit in Sipalay.

This initiative by the Sipalay LTO is a significant step towards promoting responsible driving practices and ensuring the safety of motorists and pedestrians on the road, the local government said in a statement.
